Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: What's the matter with Dubya's Cayman Island vacation and keynote speech?

Re: "Regardless of who we get for the next four years, it's just a rearranging the deck chairs."

And former President George W. Bush, a.k.a. "dubya", is working as hard as he can to rearrange them for Wall Street rich people!

Dubya just gave the keynote address at an “investment conference” in the Cayman Islands this past Thursday night, Nov 1. But we don’t know what he said, reports NBC News, because Bush’s own team required a complete “news blackout” on any details about his keynote speech.

Dubya's keynote speech was “totally closed to all journalists,” and conference organizers were banned from discussing any aspect of it even in general terms, spokesman Dan Kneipp said.

But why the blackout? Why this cowardice, this pusillanimous unwillingness to preach his gospel in the light of day without fear of public disfavor? Doesn’t he believe that it is appropriate for hedge fund managers to keep their tax liabilities as low as possible? Isn’t it a point of faith with him that corporations must flee U.S. jurisdiction to escape the dread claws of the nanny state? What’s he got to be ashamed of?

Isn't Mitt Romney a man who has personally invested some $25 million in Cayman Islands-registered funds, and whose former company, Bain, boasts more than a hundred Cayman funds?

Wouldn't you agree this is really embarrassing to all of us? I don't think it's very funny. Blow Me, Dubya!

I think the banking interests have done quite well recently, regardless of party. Money to them well spent.

Hey Monte, what's going on in CO? I thought it would be solid for the blue man.

Denver remains tops for political ads, study finds

WASHINGTON — Nov 2, 2012: Denver remains the nation’s leader in presidential advertising.

Television ads for and against President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney were shown 4,689 times between Oct. 22-29, according to Wesleyan Media Project, which analyzed data from Kantar Media/CMAG.

The Obama campaign paid for its ads to be aired 1,749 times in that period. Ads by independent Democratic groups ran 730 times.

Romney’s ads were aired 840 times, the Republican National Committee’s ads were shown 100 times and those by independent GOP groups were shown 1,270 times in that week, according to the Wesleyan analysis.

Democratic ads were broadcast 269 times more than Republican ones in Denver.

Denver was tops for much of September as well.

In Colorado, it is "Blow Me" taken to a whole new level.

On the other hand, if Amendment 64 passes (Vote YES), mj will be legal in Colorado. In Fort Collins, we have a local question on our ballot for "re-allowing" mmj ops back into Fort Collins businesses. We lost 200 jobs a year ago when Fort Collins City Council voted to ban mmj stores from operating in Fort Collins. Please Vote YES on Question 301. MMJ is already legal in Colorado's Constitution. I've had my permit for several years. It has helped me immensely.

I thought craven & company were getting hammered w/ ads. Wow.

As far as the ballot initiative, Fort Collins isn't Boulder. G'luck, and I hope it passes.

My state recently put in place a med. mj program, but no docs will fill it so far! My mother (who is ending a 38-year career as a pharmacist next month) said that no one is getting anything except red tape at this point. Once one gets the elusive permit there is no where to go- no dispensaries. We are so far behind the curve here.

I honestly dont care who 'wins'. They are gonna be sitting
on the pile of shit that dubya created anyway, and its a not going away soon enough. (See the wonderful thread of pix
of children and grandchildren)

Having lived out there, I kynda figured CO was getting
hammered as well. The proof is in the pudding.
Of all the propaganda out front of the place to vote here,
I was hoping for the MD mmj table. Even after a lil reseach
beforehand, there was the 'hope'. No such luck: not a ball
rolling.
But good luck to you Monte and the rest of CO and you all.

maybe we should just stick to listening to the Dead,
drinking duck beer, trading soup recipes, and eating crab cakes. It seems more peaceful. Except to the toilet of course...

And Sean~ I had a couple of lime leaves move in next
door, and I said "there goes the neighborhood". JOKES peeps! Funny observation of you S :) Had me rollin!

UH-OH, here come the geese again......

But, it's election time. Agitate. It's like Holloween Part 2 (with only the tricks), but only once every 4 years (and in its way, kinda like the Olympics). We will have plenty of time (hopefully) for all the tried and true topics that we all know and love.

Poor George (Ann Richards, RIP). I think both Presidents have done their absolute best to spend other people's money (actually our kids money- if it plays out that far) with the current one doing his double best.

For you c (I think most of us have a sorta shared experence @ 50ish seconds in),

Ha! I do trust that such a forward and public pronouncement of your clean laundry indicates you are completely over your pre-wash laundry issues - which we have worked so hard to eradicate (like kudzu from the South). Separating the colours! My God man, it's the 21st century! (Marx was half right, it's a grey and pink world.) But, your reference fills me with the updraft of hope.
